The Man of Tai Chi
Looks like Keanu Reeves might need to reboot his career a bit. His latest blockbuster, "47 Ronin," was a flop, and the string of indies he'd done since 2008's "The Day The Earth Stood Still" barely made a ripple. That's not to mention the sci-fi "Passengers," which needs to find a female lead (after Rachel McAdams dropped out) if shooting is to proceed on schedule this summer. So his move is—go make a low budget horror with Eli Roth.

Currently retired from public life, whatever that means, Shia LaBeouf is either Hollywood's greatest enigma or best prankster. Or both. At any rate, after owning the Berlin Film Festival press conference for Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," it looked like Shia was just gonna keep on truckin', working, making weird and possibly plagiarized art, and generally continue to upend whatever notions of decorum are affixed to young actors. But it seems he is taking a step back for a moment.

From books about cooks to pixels on the loose and oil tankers in peril, this batch of news has something to satisfy everyone. Provided, of course, that you aren’t opposed to pixels, tankers, and cooks. And if you have some sort of weird aversion to those three specific things, well, I just don’t know what to say to you reader.

Revamps of classic fairy tales are like so hot right now, and with Disney hard at work prepping a new twist on the Sleeping Beauty story with the Angelina Jolie-starrer “Maleficent” it should come as no surprise that a rival project has reared its head. Producer Neal Moritz is busy prepping a comedy take on Sleeping Beauty which will presumably be to "Maleficent" what Tarsem’s “Mirror Mirror” was to “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Moritz’s work is usually confined to the action genre, although he does occasionally work on comedies and has most recently overseen “The Bounty Hunter,” “The Change-Up” and “21 Jump Street.” That last credit is probably one that will pique interest, but...yeah, this is still a pretty terrible idea.

About six months ago, in the midst of a brief craze for studios picking up the rights to CGI-heavy viral shorts, one of the hottest properties was Patrick Jean's "Pixels," a glorified music video which featured a swarm of pixels attacking New York, taking the form of classic 8-bit video game icons like Donkey Kong and Space Invaders (you can refresh your memory by watching the short below).
